Robins loan duo out to impress

07 January 2011 03:00
Cheltenham will have new signings Phil Walsh and Ashley Eastham available for their trip to Northampton. Both striker Walsh and centre-back Eastham agreed one-month loan deals from Dagenham & Redbridge and Blackpool respectively on Thursday afternoon and go straight into Mark Yates` squad for the Sixfields clash. Eastham`s arrival coincides with the loss of central defender Martin Riley for three to four weeks with the hamstring injury he sustained during Monday`s 2-1 win at Southend. Eastham will now compete with Andy Gallinagh to line up alongside Steve Elliott at the heart of Town`s defence. Winger Josh Low (hamstring) has been missing for three-and-a-half weeks and is rated as 50/50, with a fitness test likely to decide his involvement this weekend.
